As Christians all over the world celebrate this year’s Christmas, the Director General National Orientation Agency (NOA), Garba Abari has called on Christians and indeed all Nigerians, to keep faith with the administration of President Mohammadu Buhari and to continue to pray for the economic recovery, stability and peace of Nigeria.
In his Christmas message to Christians in the country, the Director General noted that the yuletide season is a great time to pray for the recovery in the economic fortunes, sustenance of peace and total defeat of insurgency and terrorism in the country.
According to him, “Christmas celebration is the period for reflection on the virtues of sacrifice and love for humanity as exemplified by Jesus Christ”. He therefore urged Nigerians to continue to uphold the dignity and sanctity of life by shunning acts that are capable of breeding hatred, violence and disunity.
